Raja Constantijn Karimalei of Batulolong with his Ratu

Batulolong is one of the 4 maajor principalities on the island of Alor, which lies above Timor. There are 2 more areas,but these are not always considered as real principalites.According to tradition the first ruler, or Lord of Batulolong came from East-Timor: Kepanu Kani. This in 1928 born Raja is the younger brother of the last ruling raja of Batulolong with name Raja Lourens Karimalei, who was from 1947-1962 the 14th ruler of Batulolong.
He died in 1996.
Alor people are known as very sweet people. The rajas mostly began as coast-rajas/rulers, coming from other islands and trying to make cooperation with inland people.
On islands like Alor and Timor tradition remains in a healthy way in every day life.

Dear raders;

The last years,there is a big revival going on in the dynasties of Alor and Pantar to write again about their histories.Espacially the dynasty of batulolong is exemplary in that.
